Pet food bags, and methods of making the same, contain a seal that resists air exchange more than conventional bags thereby protecting nutritional ingredients that are susceptible to oxidation.


The present invention relates to compositions containing plant materials or extracts with inhibitory effect on a 5-HT3a and/or NK-1 receptor for preventing or treating idiopathic vomiting.


Compositions containing one or more compounds with inhibitory effect on a 5-HT3a and/or NK-1 receptor are effective for preventing or treating idiopathic vomiting in a mammal.


A method and apparatus for accurately performing multiple tasks on a web of material are described herein. The method and apparatus include at least a first detector for detecting a detectable feature on the web of material for performing a first operation at a first location on the web of material, and a second detector for detecting a detectable feature on the web of material for performing a second operation at a second location on the web of material. The method and apparatus further include an automated compensating device that cooperates at least indirectly with the detectors. The compensating device reduces any variations in position along the length of the web of material between at least one of said first locations and/or said second locations.


The present invention is based on the discovery that mannoheptulose (mHep) reduces or inhibits the differentiation process of fat stem cells into adipocytes so as to decrease the bodys fat storage capacity. Compositions comprising a mHep, process of making the compositions, and methods of using the compositions for treating or preventing overweight and obesity in a mammal, such as, for example, a growing pet (e.g., puppy, kitten), or a spayed/neutered pet, are encompassed by the present invention.


The present invention relates to a use of composition comprising a glucose anti-metabolite and/or source of glucose anti-metabolite in a method of enhancing a positive affect and/or energetic arousal in a mammal.


Disclosed herein is a process for preparing a carbohydrate extract comprising mannoheptulose from avocados, as well as compositions, including food compositions, comprising such extracts. The process includes separating the aqueous emulsion into different fractions by centrifugation, and isolating the water-soluble fraction (water extract) comprising avocado carbohydrates, including mannoheptulose. In various aspects, the process optionally includes steps of heating, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, concentrating, and or drying the extract. Also described herein are methods for using the carbohydrate extract comprising mannoheptulose and compositions comprising the carbohydrate extract comprising mannoheptulose.

Formulations and methods for managing variable fat mobility when foods are exposed to temperature cycling, as during transportation and storage. Stability of the fat within the food may be influenced by, for example, using primarily non-polymorphic fats, limiting the aqueous content of the fat, using dry additives in the fat (if additives are used), or modifying the food itself.
